Long-term Insights Briefing  

Long-term Insights Briefing  

Thank you for submitting your feedback on our Long-term Insights Briefing. Public consultation closed on Sunday 11 December, 2022.

The Ministry for Pacific Peoples invites you to provide feedback on our Long-term Insights Briefing: Improving Pacific data equity – opportunities to enhance the future of Pacific wellbeing.

The Long-term Insights Briefings (LTIBs) are a new government requirement under the Public Service Act 2020. They require agencies and government departments to think at least 10 years ahead, examining future trends, risks and opportunities that could affect Aotearoa New Zealand.

Our topic, Improving Pacific data equity: Opportunities to enhance the future of Pacific wellbeing, explores government’s current data eco-system and how past and present ways of collecting, processing, analysing and interpreting data has led to inequities for Pacific peoples. It also identifies three focus areas to achieve data equity for Pacific peoples to enhance the wellbeing of our communities.

As part of developing our LTIB,  we are required to undertake two rounds of public consultation to ensure our final LTIB reflects public views – the first on the proposed topic, and the second on the detailed LTIB content. In November 2021, we consulted publicly on our proposed LTIB topic. Following that, we have developed a detailed LTIB report and are now seeking the public’s views through this second round of public consultation.  

The feedback we receive through this consultation will help us to inform our final LTIB that will be submitted to Parliament.

Government agencies are required to publish a LTIB at least once every three years. The purpose of the LTIB is to share: 

  • information about medium and long-term trends, risks and opportunities that may affect Aotearoa New Zealand 
  • information and impartial analysis, including policy options for responding to these issues in future. 

The LTIB is a way for the public to contribute meaningfully on issues that will be important in the medium to long-term future of Aotearoa New Zealand.

The topic of the Ministry's LTIB is Improving Pacific data equity: Opportunities to enhance the future of Pacific wellbeing. This topic was identified because of the wide-ranging impacts data has on New Zealand's Pacific communities.

Data is used by government to inform its decision-making. As stewards of Pacific peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand, we want to help government to generate accurate, relevant and representative data to support better decisions that affect Pacific peoples, now and for the future.

We need to ensure that the LTIB is relevant and focused on what matters to Pacific peoples and Pacific communities in Aotearoa New Zealand. We want to hear directly from you about your views on how Pacific data impacts your life, families and communities.  

The feedback we receive will be used to develop our final LTIB that will be presented to Parliament.

There are two phases of public consultation:

  • Phase One is now closed. This first round of consultation took place in November 2021, which sought feedback on the proposed LTIB topic.
  • Phase Two is now open. This second round of consultation seeks feedback on the detailed LTIB and we have provided questions above to seek your views. Public consultation closes on 11 December 2022.

You are not required to provide any personal information to complete this feedback process. 

Any information you do provide will be collected confidentially and we will only use the information to inform the development of the LTIB – all participants will remain confidential in publication.

MPP adheres to the Aotearoa New Zealand Government-endorsed Data Protection and Use Policy to ensure data privacy and safety.
